Using the palm of your hand, push down on the garlic bulb to separate the cloves from the root.
Place the unpeeled garlic cloves in a large bowl or sealable hard-sided container. You want it to be much larger than the garlic.
Place another bowl upside down on top of the first. You can also use a plate or a lid. Hold the two bowls together tightly and shake vigorously for 20-30 seconds.
Discard all the garlic peel and remove any that might still be attached. They should come off very easily.
Storage: Store any peeled garlic cloves, whether sliced, minced or crushed in a small airtight container in the refrigerator for 5-10 days.
Nutritional Data: The information below is an automated estimate for the garlic alone, which is not a nutritional food on its own.
